"By the way, and in case you want clarification, Reich Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels believed that Poland attacked Germany in 1939, not the other way around. Well that's what he said, and he stuck to it."

Odd, isn't it, that Putin more or less agrees with Herr Goebbels? In a truly down-is-up moment, he also blamed Poland for starting the war: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/01/putin-blames-poland-world-war-ii/604426/ -- I imagine that since Putin says it, der Cheetofuhrer believes it.

The takeaway, in our time, is that truth is whatever your favorite dictator or wannabe can persuade his supporters is true. Never mind that it has a half-life, in nanoseconds, matching the IQ of the speaker and his base. Whatever gets you through the soundbite, is alright.

Everybody knows, under the imaginary rules of warfare, that if you take out a general then all his subordinates have to stop whatever they are doing. Right?
